The Counseling Psychology program is designed to prepare the student for this undertaking from a perspective which takes into account the human being as a whole person with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions, and which focuses on the family as an interactive system. The focus of this program is on developing an integration of academic knowledge and clinical skills so that, at the time of graduation, students are well prepared as beginning marital and family therapists.
The Marital and Family Therapy program is designed to meet all academic requirements for the California state license in Marital and Family Therapy. Licensing by the California Board of Behavioral Science Examiners requires a master's degree with specified content, supervised counseling experience, a post-master's internship, and written and oral examinations.
